Forest and Habitat Management Techniques for Wildlife

Location: Lower Otter Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA), Sand Road, Ferrisburg, VT

Visit Lower Otter Creek WMA to view the results of a timber harvest with wildlife in mind. Walk with biologist Dave Sausville and forester Matt Leonard as they showcase the different forest and habitat management techniques used to manage this property for wildlife.

We will visit harvested areas and discuss the strategies used to achieve specific objectives and goals on the parcel. These same forest management practices are used to enhance habitat on private land. Bring your questions about forest and wildlife habitat management.

Registration is not required but appreciated. For more information or directions please contact Lisa Sausville at 802-877-2777 or
